Al-Zubaidi is Dead

Mohammad Hamza Al-Zubaidi has relocated to Hell.

For the historical record: Al-Zubaidi (55 Most Wanted List member) was arrested near the town of Hillah on April 21, 2003 by an Iraqi National Congress (Free Iraqi Forces) unit led by Col. Ya’arub Al-Hashimi (“Harbi”). Col. Al-Hashimi, a Sunni Arab from Baghdad and an Iraqi-Canadian citizen, went to on to lead the 36th Battalion of the Iraqi Civil Defense Corps (later the 36th Commando Battalion), and was relieved of his duties in the autumn of 2004 by Defense Minister Hazim Al-Sha’alan for refusing orders to storm the shrine of Imam Ali in Najaf during the confrontation with the Mahdi Army. Al-Hashimi is currently Iraq’s military attaché in London.
